Santorini Experience 2018

One of most popular Greek islands, Santorini, known for its beautiful Cycladic architecture and idyllic sunsets, will be hosting in early October 2018 the major sport event “Santorini Experience” attracting for the 4th consecutive year professional athletes and sports enthusiasts from across Greece and the world.

The 4th Santorini Experience will be held on 5-7 October 2018 offering both professional and amateur swimmers and runners from across the globe an amazing sporting experience and an action-packed weekend full of sports, activities and exciting events in one of the best loved Greek destinations with its whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and countless vineyards.

This year’s initiative will include 3 different running routes, namely a 5km, 10km and 15 km race, where participating athletes will have the opportunity to try out their strength while admiring the impressive landscapes and the breathtaking caldera views passing through the traditional settlements of Imerovigli, Firostefani and Oia, as well as a 2.4 km open water swimming event between the volcano and the old port of Fira.

Parallel events will include, as always, the 1 km children’s race in addition to a Tae Kwon Do demonstration from two times silver Olympic medalist, Alexandros Nikolaidis.

Santorini Experience, which is co-organized by the Municipality of Santorini, the Municipal Sports, Cultural and Environmental Organization of Santorini (DAPPOS) and Active Media Group, is also held under the auspices of the Greek National Tourism Organization.
